Excellent picture quality and options for pro

  • Summary: I purchased it from another retailer few months ago, so far I am very happy with it. Very good picture quality. Not heavy and tons of options if you want to get fancy with it. The battery last very long(4900mA). I can do a wedding with one battery without the need to change the battery.

Good camera for affordable price

Luis Melgar, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This is a very good camera for run and gun journalism, it has an amazing zoom and all the necessary features to work well and deliver professional work. The white balance is sometimes tricky to manage and the colors of the LCD screen are not that reliable, usually the quality of the footage is better assessed once the footage is downloaded. The focus assistant feature also doesn't work that well, the red (or yellow or white line) isn't that visible.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom

Amazing camera just got more amazing

  • Excerpt: I bought two of these for event and studio shoots after reading reviews from B&H. I seriously searched for a week trying to find someone who bad mouthed this camera. After buying I realized why no one said anything bad. I love both of them and could give you millions of things I loved, but here is my very critical honest review for people who have deep concerns of any draw backs on this camera.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Good in Low Light, Great Firmware Update, Great Picture Quality, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD
  • Cons: Slow Auto Focus

Great Video Camera

BHill, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: I use the camera to shoot a web series. I love the picture quality and battery life. I think this is a great camera for the price. I don't like that the camera can go out of focus in low light when it is trying to refocus but overall this is a great camera. You can't get all you want in a camera but this camera comes really close.

Great Camera So Far

Hardy Video Production, B&H Photo
13 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I took a chance in buying this camera. It was between the Sony NX cam and the JVC. I was surprised at the picture quality they where very sharp and crisp with ultra high resolution. Camera is extremely easy to operate. I particularly like the capabilities to changing format of the recording media AVCHD, QuickTime Movies files or MPEG 4.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Lightweight, Professional Quality

Feature filled and Highly Functional

Barbara Baskets Studios, B&H Photo
9 February 2014
  • Excerpt: No camera has all the features we could want , however , this model comes close. The JVC GY HM600 works great at the Full Auto setting and on Manual it eliminates any focus hunting. My first shoot included difficult lighting sources and the focus/ exposure/ white balance was very good. On Auto the Assist Focus works great while recording!The build quality is very good.I handle my camera like a newborn baby so any item that seems a bit weak should not give me any trouble.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Great picture quality, Professional Quality

  • Excerpt: A little front heavy for the tripod and likes to go in and out of focus in low light while zoomed in. Great features and easy to use. Awesome HD pictures.

Great portable HD camera from JVC

Doug, B&H Photo
23 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Small package with big detail. Can mount on tripod or use as mobile camcorder to follow action. Battery life is good and it gives tons of recording time when using 2- 32GB SD cards. You can use bigger ones as well. Downloads direct into Final Cut Pro but the files seem large. 30 minutes of recording can equal 30-40GB files.
  • Pros: Compact Design, Lightweight, Professional Quality
